Aquilegia canadensis – Wild Columbine


One of our favorite wildflowers and an important nectar source for Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in Spring. A very tough plant – we’ve seen it growing out of cracks in rock ledges and on top of rock outcrops – it needs well-drained soil to thrive. Like many other members of the Buttercup family, it often occurs in areas of limestone but is quite adaptable in the garden. Can be short-lived but self-sows readily.
